    Consumers Association

    Welcome to the Consumers’ Association, a national level non-profit organization (NGO) dedicated to protecting the interest of consumers in all walks of life. As a consumer, it is really important to understand your rights. If you understand your rights, then you will feel more confident to stand up for yourself when things go wrong. Unless you are very familiar with the law, you may be easily confused by terms like 'statutory right' or 'express warranty' or 'guarantee'. In our experience, it is not just consumers who may be confused by words like these, but also retailers, service providers and manufacturers too.

    Ours is a registered organization (NGO) with its registered office at Palakkad and is unique and different with its selfless service. It is recognized locally (9 State Awards, Govt. of Kerala),nationally (2 National awards,Govt. of India) and internationally (the UN Special Consultative Status & UNCTAD regd. NGO) for its exceptional performance towards the civil society. We support programs for sustainable & economic development, food security, consumer protection, emergency aid, rehabilitation, health care and preservation of the environment.

    KERALA

    Kerala is one of the ten 'Paradises Found' by the National Geographic Traveler, for its diverse geography and overwhelming greenery. It is a land much acclaimed for the contemporary nature of its cultural ethos, and much appreciated for the soothing, rejuvenating paradise that it is. Geographically, Kerala is a narrow fertile strip on the southwest coast of India, sandwiched between the Lakshadweep Sea and the Western Ghats. The Western Ghats with their dense forests and extensive ridges have sheltered Kerala from many mainland invaders and the long coastline has encouraged maritime contact with the outside world - a contact that has resulted in an interesting blend of cultures.

    Kerala is a state on the Malabar Coast of southwestern India. To its east and northeast, Kerala borders Tamil Nadu and Karnataka respectively; to its west and south lie Arabian Sea and the Indian Ocean with the islands of Lakshadweep and the Maldives, respectively. Kerala envelops Mahe, a coastal exclave of Pondicherry. Kerala is one of the four states in South India.

    Kerala attracted the notice of people in other parts of India even from time immemorial .The great Epics Ramayana and Mahabharatha, show awareness of Kerala on the part of their authors. Katyayana (4th century BC) and Pathanjali (2nd Century BC) show their acquaintance with the geography of Kerala. Kautilya's Arthasastra mentions Kerala.The puranas also mention Kerala.Kalidasa's Raghuvamsa has given a beautiful description of Kerala.

    Kerala is known for its communal harmony and it is achieved by Kerala's interaction with varied cultures and ways of life, both indigenous and foreign . At the same time Kerala's commercial contacts with foreign countries, world religions like Christianity, Judaism and Islam were also introduced in the land and they helped considerably in shaping the composite culture of the land.

    Located between north latitudes 8 degree 18' and 12 degree 48' and east longitudes 74 degree 52' and 72 degree 22', this land of eternal beauty encompasses 1.18 per cent of the country. The Western Ghats, bordering the eastern boundary of the State, form an almost continuous mountain wall, except near Palakkad where there is a natural mountain pass known as the Palakkad Gap. The average elevation of the Ghats is about 1500 meters above sea level, occasionally soaring to peaks of 2000 to 2500 m. From the Ghats, the land slopes to west on to the plains, into an unbroken coastline.

    The nature of the terrain and its physical features, divides an east west cross section of the state into three district regions - hill and valleys , midland plains and coastal region. Kerala has 31,838,619 people according to the 2001 census, which is nearly 3.44 per cent of the country's population. Her population density is 819 persons per sq.km., the third in India and clocks at thrice the national average. The sex-ratio recorded in this census is 1058 females per 1000 males.

    INDIA

    India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world with a kaleidoscopic variety and rich cultural heritage. It has achieved all-round socio-economic progress during the last 62 years of its Independence. India has become self-sufficient in agricultural production and is now one of the top industrialized countries in the world and one of the few nations to have gone into outer space to conquer nature for the benefit of the people. It covers an area of 32,87,263 sq. km, extending from the snow-covered Himalayan heights to the tropical rain forests of the south. As the 7th largest country in the world, India stands apart from the rest of Asia, marked off as it is by mountains and the sea, which give the country a distinct geographical entity. Bounded by the Great Himalayas in the north, it stretches southwards and at the Tropic of Cancer, tapers off into the Indian Ocean between the Bay of Bengal on the east and the Arabian Sea on the west.

    Lying entirely in the northern hemisphere, the mainland extends between latitudes 8° 4' and 37° 6' north, longitudes 68° 7' and 97° 25' east and measures about 3,214 km from north to south between the extreme latitudes and about 2,933 km from east to west between the extreme longitudes. It has a land frontier of about 15,200 km. The total length of the coastline of the mainland, Lakshadweep Islands and Andaman & Nicobar Islands is 7,516.6 km.
